Everyone please brush up on the difference between the words "effects" and "affects."

Thanks.

I don't care who the messenger is anymore, unless they're running for office. It's all about the message for me. Might as well black out the name of the messenger.

I realize you think you're talking big and bad, but pray tell, what do you mean? Seriously. Spell it out. Because we all know what you're thinking. We all want to do that, so why don't we? Because we know deep down that it's not the way. We know the way. You're just expecting someone else to fire the first shot. When you've fired that first shot, come talk big. Until then, excuse the rest of us while we stick to the plan.

Because Elon just bought Twitter. I don't sit around worrying about whether he's good or bad. NCSWIC. If we want to chew the fat about an extremely fascinating current event that might impact the election, like possibly freeing Twitter from liberal chains, that seems reasonable to me. Bickering bitterly about whether we can trust him or not in our best Batman voices, not so much.

And did you seriously look up my other posts to try to make your point? Did this post hurt your fragile feelings that much?

Stop worrying about whether Elon is a white hat or black hot. If NCSWIC then NCSWIC. Cry somewhere else.

Ok why does this keep getting discussed? Has DeSantis actually suggested he wants to run against Trump or is everyone just getting uncomfortable with how popular he's getting?

NCSWIC. Go argue somewhere else nobody wants to hear your petty squabbles with each other.

Cool. I'll try to verify that the next time I meet one.

Fucking weirdo.

I'm not arguing he's on our side. I'm hoping he is. You seem to be arguing that he's not, like it's something any of us could actually know yet. You got your suspicions. I hear you. But I don't see what the chicken little act is for. 99% of us here are simply hopeful but cautious. You seem like you think you've read his diary. Relax, dude. Let this unfold. You don't have to be the first one to break the story. Nobody cares.

Lol wanna throw a third strike in there for good measure? Nice ad hominem though. Keep on quoting Paul. I'll keep on quoting Jesus. If the Zionists do that, I'd be pretty surprised.

I'm not sure that claim is true yet but if his intentions are what they appear to be, and the Deep State's sudden fears about him are well-founded, then I think that bring free speech back to Twitter would most certainly put him up there. He sure seems like he's trying to do just that thus far. I see no reason yet to give up hope that he's on our side.

For no reason whatsoever? He bought Twitter and fired everyone who has been censoring us for years. I admit he may still not be on the right side but how can you say there's no reason whatsoever for thinking he might be? Are you serious?

I agree that they shouldn't be phrased as claims. I think they should be framed as theories. I think there's plenty of evidence that the guy is on our side. Doesn't mean he is, but you don't think that the fact that he thumbs his nose at the Deep State, seems hated by the Deep State, just apparently wrested control of Twitter from the Deep State (even though he MIGHT still be Deep State) is evidence that he just might be on our side? Again, he might not, but there sure seems to be a lot of evidence for it. Do you not agree?

Agreed. I think we're going to come to learn at some point though that referring to this whole operation as simply "a plan" won't do it justice.

Tony Stark was part of Dr. Strange's "plan" to beat Thanos, but he wasn't in on the plan. He was a critical part of it, but he had no idea what his job would be or when. Something tells me the Q plan to save the world is something like that.

Probably nothing. But your willingness to keep an open mind to the possibility that you've been looking at something the wrong way could help a great deal in the grander scheme of things. If for nobody else, you.

As the saying goes "Only a sith speaks in absolutes", yes? I think on this board especially, it would go a long way for all of us to admit we don't know, and to posit our musings and suspicions and conclusions as opinion, to avoid activating our own egos so that we don't shut down those mental pathways that we need to discern the truth. I'm sure I'm preaching to the choir on this topic. You wouldn't be on this site unless you were open-minded. But I've found that even many on this site, as open-minded as they have allowed themselves to become over the past few years, still struggle with knee-jerk reactions whenever anyone says something that initially sounds at odds with how they personally have interpreted Scripture. Rather than say "Hmm...that doesn't sound right to me, here's why. Perhaps you could elaborate" they instead switch into almost a Preacher's role, 100% certain the person they're speaking to has gotten something horribly wrong that threatens their salvation, and they can't seem to move past it.

You see Elon wearing this stuff and you instantly thought "Ha! Bad guy! I knew it!" Some others come and say "Now wait a minute..." and you seem very inflexible with your preconceived notion. I'm not saying your notion is wrong. You might be right, but that reaction is what we should all be looking out for. That reaction stops the thinking process. Stops the pathways we need to remain open to receive new light and knowledge. Those on this site apply that so well to so many things, but when the topic of Jesus comes up, or anything remotely to do with their religion, and bam. Pure rigidity. All I'm saying is that the mind you've used to sift through other assumptions can still be used when dealing with matters of God, Christ, and Scripture. And there's no need to feel too threatened when something arises that at first glance, doesn't sound quite right to you.
